The Screen Guide

During his final days before retiring from the High Court of Australia,Justice Michael Kirby explores the personal, moral and spiritual convictions which provide the framework for understanding one of Australia’s greatest legal minds. The backbone of this documentary is an exclusive long form interview with the Judge. It covers all aspects of his life in the Law, his commitment to Human Rights, his family background, his strong religious convictions and his enduring relationship with his life partner of forty years, Mr Johan van Vloten. And, of course, his strong commitment to Human Rights.
